Brazil PS4s expensive due to sales taxes
Sony has stepped up and made a post on their official PlayStation Blog for Brazil. According to them, the recommended retail price of $3,999 is not their fault and it’s due to high taxes that are being applied in Brazil.
We all know that Brazil has insane taxes on imported things, because they want to encourage the local industries. So exactly 63% of the RRP for PlayStation 4 is caused by taxes and it’s not a decision made by Sony.
